Captains's Chosen Charity For 2018
18th January 2018
To mark our Silver Jubilee, we have chosen to support not one, but two local charities. Both have been recommended by Sand Martins members with experience of the invaluable work that they do. One is a new charity that we have not supported before, and the other is a charity that we have previously supported and continues to do great work, that we have chosen to symbolise and highlight the outstanding contribution that Sand Martins members have made to the local community throughout its 25 years.
The charities chosen are:
1.Building for the Future – a parent led, Wokingham charity which runs Our House, a unique accessible play centre designed specifically to meet the needs of children with disabilities and/or additional needs.
2.My Cancer My Choices – another local charity, that provides support to cancer sufferers through complementary therapies from its bases in the Royal Berkshire Hospital Cancer Centre and Bracknell Healthspace.
Both charities rely entirely on fundraising and the donations of supporters and do outstanding work. All the money that we raise will be used to further improve, develop and extend the support they are able to provide members of our community.
